You agree to indemnify Abamath LLC, Code Championship, and all their affiliates, employees, faculty members, fellows, students, agents, representatives, third party service providers, and partners (all of which are "Abamath Entities"), and to defend and hold each of them harmless, from any and all claims and liabilities (including attorneys' fees) arising out of or related to your breach of the Terms of Service or your use of Code Championship.

For federal government agencies, provisions in the Terms of Use relating to Indemnification shall not apply to your Official Use, except to the extent expressly authorized by federal law. For state and local government agencies in the United States, Terms of Use relating to Indemnification shall apply to your Official Use only to the extent authorized by the laws of your jurisdiction.

10. Disclaimer of Warranty

You acknowledge that you are using Code Championship at your own risk. Code Championship is provided "as is," and the Abamath Entities hereby expressly disclaim any and all warranties, express and implied, including but not limited to any warranties of accuracy, reliability, title, merchantability, non-infringement, fitness for a particular purpose or any other warranty, condition, guarantee or representation, whether oral, in writing or in electronic form, including but not limited to the accuracy or completeness of any information contained therein or provided by Code Championship. Without limiting the foregoing, the Abamath Entities disclaim any and all warranties, express and implied, regarding user-generated content and tournament events. The Abamath Entities and their third party service providers do not represent or warrant that access to Code Championship will be uninterrupted or that there will be no failures, errors or omissions or loss of transmitted information, or that no viruses will be transmitted through Code Championship services.

11. Limitation of Liability

The Abamath Entities shall not be liable to you or any third parties for any direct, indirect, special, consequential or punitive damages of any kind, regardless of the type of claim or the nature of the cause of action, even if Abamath LLC has been advised of the possibility of such damages. Without limiting the foregoing, the Code Championship Entites shall have no liability to you or any third parties for damages or harms arising out of user-generated content or tournament events.

12. Jurisdiction

Code Championship is offered by Abamath LLC from its facilities in the United States. Abamath LLC makes no representations that Code Championship is appropriate or available for use in other locations. Those who access or use Code Championship are responsible for compliance with local law.

13. Choice of Law and Venue

You agree that these Terms of Use, for all purposes, shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Minnesota applicable to contracts to be wholly performed therein, and any action based on, relating to, or alleging a breach of the Terms of Use must be brought in a state or federal court in Hennepin County, Minnesota. In addition, both parties agree to submit to the exclusive personal jurisdiction and venue of such courts.

If you are a federal, state, or local government entity in the United States using Code Championship in your official capacity and legally unable to accept the controlling law, jurisdiction or venue clauses above, then those clauses do not apply to you. For such U.S. federal government entities, these Terms and any action related thereto will be governed by the laws of the United States of America (without reference to conflict of laws) and, in the absence of federal law and to the extent permitted under federal law, the laws of the State of Minnesota (excluding choice of law).

14. Choice of Language

If Abamath LLC provides you with a translation of the English language version of these Terms of Use, the Privacy Policy, or any other policy, then you agree that the translation is provided for informational purposes only and does not modify the English language version. In the event of a conflict between a translation and the English version, the English version will govern.

15. No Waiver

No waiver of any term of these Terms of Use shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and Abamath LLC's failure to assert any right or provision under these Terms of Use shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.

16. Entire Agreement

This document constitutes the entire Terms of Use and supersedes all previous agreements with Abamath LLC relating to the use of Code Championship. Revision date: July 28, 2020.
